After 100 days on the road, the Last Overland expedition is returning to London on Saturday, December 14th, with "Oxford," the same iconic Series 1 86” Station Wagon that completed the “First Overland” expedition in 1955-56.
James Bond has always been closely associated with Land Rovers, and there have been some models already confirmed for the new film, 2020’s No Time to Die. The trailer, which dropped last week, hints at a few more Land Rovers that’ll feature in 007’s next adventure.
You can’t even take delivery of a New Defender yet, and already it looks like Land Rover is looking to expand the model range in both directions, with a “baby Defender” to compete with mini-SUVs from other luxury marques, and a “Defender Sport” with an electric drivetrain taking up the mantle of the six-figure vehicle.
The new Defender had its North American launch in Downtown Los Angeles before the Los Angeles Auto Show. The debut featured celebrities from John Mayer to Olympic Ski and Snowboard Team members.
Having posted their first profitable quarter in over a year, Jaguar Land Rover is finally looking towards better days ahead. Things aren't perfect, but management sees the potential. In a recent interview with Autocar, JLR CEO Prof. Sir Ralf Speth gave some insight into the future of the company.

A new James Bond film is in the works, which means that iconic British brands are coming together to infuse the film with a healthy dose of Cool Britannia. As in the past few films, Land Rover will play a prominent role. No Time to Die will feature the New Defender's first film role.
After an incredibly rocky year and a half, Jaguar Land Rover is starting to see financial stability again. They posted a £156m pre-tax profit for the quarter covering July-September 2019, significantly up from the £395m loss they posted from April-June 2019.
The musical lineup for the 4xFAR Festival, the weekend-long event Land Rover will be hosting in California's Coachella Valley January 18-19, 2020 to launch the new Defender, has been announced. It's a lineup of hot modern artists, including a few Grammy winners.
The New Defender hasn't even hit the showrooms yet, and already there are rumors of high-performance variants. The motoring press reports that a Defender SVR may be on the way, making use of BMW's 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 motor.
